Producer for Emerging Initiatives, Education and Archives, The Eichelberger Center for Community Voices

Jocelyn Robinson is a Yellow Springs, OH-based educator, media producer, and radio preservationist.

She holds a BA in Art History from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio and a Master’s in Cultural Studies with a concentration in Race, Gender, and Identity from Antioch University. In 2015 she earned a graduate certificate in Public History with a focus on Archives Administration, also from Wright State.

Since 2007, she has taught transdisciplinary literature courses for Antioch University which incorporate critical cultural theory and her research interests in self-definition and identity. She also teaches community-based and college-level classes in digital storytelling and narrative journalism.

A Community Voices producer at WYSO since 2013 and an AIR New Voices Scholar in 2014, Robinson's recent projects include West Dayton Stories and contributing to the Goethe-Institut USA podcast, The Big Ponder. She was a member of the 2019 Third Coast Community Advisory Group, and a Third Coast listener in the 2021 Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.

Robinson served as WYSO’s first Archives Fellow, producing Rediscovered Radio, short documentaries using WYSO’s civil rights era audio as source material. She continues to help guide the growth and development of the WYSO Archives.

A member of the African American and Civil Rights Radio Caucus of the Radio Preservation Task Force at the Library of Congress, in 2019 Robinson was awarded a National Recording Preservation Foundation grant to survey the archival holdings of radio stations at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). She currently directs the HBCU Radio Preservation Pilot Project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
